Please contact me before you even consider buying a vehicle from this (what shouldnt be a) dealer! long story short, Mr. Mark Hampton told me" Do to my ability to shop around and price challenge or get a good deal, i was "Fired" as a customer and my vehicle would no longer be welcome there, and good luck finding another dealer! Both him and his GM told me that they lost money when they sold me the truck and that they are in the business to make money~ And rip people off.. please contact me for the whole story, otherwise beware..

Just so you won't have to keep talking to yourself, I thought I'd reply to your post. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/005.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt005' />



I don't know anything about the dealership but I found your post to be quite hilarious. If I understand what you said, the dealer said they lost money when they sold you your truck. That's about the silliest thing I ever heard. If the dealer knew he was going to lose money by selling you the truck, what the hell was he thinking? The dealer has the same option as the customer, either take the deal or turn it down. I've heard of buyer's remorse but seller's remorse is new to me. Maybe this dealer is working a new business model where they lose money on every vehicle they sell but they make up the difference by selling in volume.



Turn about is fair play and if their business is to make money and rip people off, then they can now understand it from the customer's viewpoint where the dealer become the "rippee" instead of the ripper! This dealer is a barrel of laughs! <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt004' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt004' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt004' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':laugh:' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':laugh:' />

you know i agree, right now im hoping and praying someone from nissan will help me out with this, as well as the BBB and the Florida department of consumer problems. I would expect that nissan lays down the rules to this dealership, but we'll see.. I can tell you no matter what, if this was my dealership, this would not be going on, no how, no way.. business in the future is not looking good.. Im also trying to work with my daily news paper to do a story about this, or atleast post a "beware ad"



right now i wish i had a buddy who was a lawyer!

Good grief, just let it go! If a dealer didn't want to work on my truck and had told me I wasn't welcome at their dealership, I don't think I would trust them to perform work on my truck anyway. I'd find another dealer who would want to service my truck as there are too many places who would want your business. I've never had service work done at the dealership where I purchased my truck because of the distance. You are not required to have service work done at the selling dealer.



I would just say. sayonara! <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/019.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt004' /> You'll live longer.

I would love to just go to another dealer, however the next dealer to me is 50 miles plus one way, at $3.50 a gallon that could get costly for a oil change, or warranty service work, if i had another nissan dealer in town, or even close by then it would be no problem, i would tell them to piss off!
